The condenser coils dissipate heat. If dust and debris accumulate around the coils, your unit may not be able to cool properly, it may run continuously or it may stop completely as a result of an overheated compressor. You should clean your coils once a year.

The outside unit will work only briefly and bring the temp. down about 1 degree in 2 hours of running. Then the outside unit turns off for at least 2 to 3 hours.


Does the outside unit completley shutoff or does the
condensor fan keep on operating? If this is the case
the compressor could be overheating and shutting down. Try washing the condensor from inside out.

If you can read electrical diagram on the back of the
condensor electrical panel check to see if it has a
high pressure switch, if this is the case it probably
is cycling off this switch. Wash the Condensor and make sure the fan is operating.

If the big insulated line does not feel cool after 15 min. of operation you could be low on freon.

Food compartment cools ok; bottom freezer doesn't.


the problem when a fridge needs a condensor fan is that it causes the unit to work harder there is a good chance that it cooked the sealed systm also might want to check the condensor for a clogg or dirty condensor.the temp around the unit ideally these are to be used in rooms of 65 to 96 degrees so if in garage can be hard to work well

Freezer not freezing, and the panel between the fridge and the freezer gets very hot


The condensor fan motor is probably not running. The condensor fan keeps the compresor cooled, if the compresor gets to hot, it shuts down until it cools off and tuns back on, but will not keep temp. Heat exchange lines go in the panel between the doors to serve as a heater so the doors dont freeze shut, but when the compresor overheats, so do those lines. That would be why that panel gets so hot. Both problems will be resolved with a new condensor fan motor ( located by the compresor).

Condenser shuts down after a couple of hours.


check capacitors, make sure the condensor coil is clean. sounds like the compressor is overheating. is the condensor fan motor still turning when it stops cooling. if not check low voltage wires to condensor, furnace and t-stat
